A new ITV drama series is to be filmed in Sheffield over the summer.

Based on a mother who becomes embroiled in a dangerous romance as she struggles with a messy divorce, Desire follows the life of central character Leia whose new-found passion threatens to jeopardise her job, home and children.

The drama, written by Jeremy Brock, will be a five part series.

The cast has not yet been announced.

Brock, the creator behind Casualty, Mrs Brown and Bafta-winner The Last King Of Scotland, said: "For a long time, I've wanted to write about what it feels like to be a parent, to try and balance the unconditionality of parental love with the shock of adult passion.

"Our values are bound up with our identity ... children, family, work, love, our ideologies.

"I wanted to write about what happens when all these lights, by which we steer, are suddenly torn away and we are offered the stark choice: adapt or risk losing everything."
